Where are the Elders? Our young people need them – By Yvonne Sam

Where are the Elders? Our young people need them
– By Yvonne Sam

I have always been one who strives to speak the truth as it is and not refer to a spade as a garden tool rather than by its correct nomenclature a spade.

I know for a fact that the statements that follow may be a hard pill to swallow but then again pill taking is always a start to situational or conditional remediation. Looking at the recent spate of heinous crimes being committed by young people in Guyana I cannot help but join in the journey towards an answer. Our young people are in desperate need of leadership and for the elders to display guidance in order to navigate through life as it exists in present day Guyana.      Continue reading

The world celebrated the landing of Neil Armstrong on the moon on July 20, 1969,  a milestone for the human race, but the significance lay more in what it promised.

This was to be the dawning of a technological age in which the scientific achievement of putting a man on the moon 238,855 miles in the sky would launch an era in which human beings are freed from the drudgery of work and live lives of leisure and creativity.    Continue reading

The mood is rather defensive. Indeed, evidence is still lacking on the alleged chemical attacks in Douma, which was the alibi for the missile strike. There are no tall claims, either, as regards the effectiveness of the missile strike in military terms.    Continue reading

While our bombs turn the Middle East into rubble, people at the bottom rungs in America face their own hell. This month, the Institute for Policy Studies has published its empirical study, The Souls of Poor Folk, highlighting the complex issues that entangle our lives: systemic racism, persistent poverty, the war economy and militarism, and ecological devastation.
